145 pp, 9" H. "(E)xplores the origin of more than 400 fascinating place names around Eastern Ontario. You'll find folklore - like the tale of the 'Bastard' township - and documented history, such as the true story of the Breakaway of Hilton Creek. You'll find the stories behind our forgotten, and nearly forgotten place names - maybe even a name you haven't heard for generations! Dawber has driven along the back roads, through the crossroads, and even along the abandoned railroads to record the vanishing history of our place names. The old rhyme of Cankerville, the race horses of La Renouche, the famous fight of Bullies Acre - these stories, and the names springing from them, are all part of (this book)."
